Why can't you make that comparison? Both first and economy class have fully refundable fares and restricted fares. I think it makes sense to compare cheapest first class (usually I or P) to cheapest non-basic-economy available. Or you could compare full Y to full F. Either way, you are going to usually get a 2-4x price difference.

Every domestic airline I've ever been on will bring you something from the back if you ask. It's completely standard (though, unadvertised). Snack boxes are a common request. I've gotten them on UA, AA, and formerly VX. AS is the only one that doesn't give them to you. As a first class experience, it's far below the competition.
